Located in Jwa-dong, Haeundae-gu, the house will feature four stories above ground and two basement levels. The house will function as a permanent space promoting mutual understanding between ASEAN and Korea, hosting a colorful program of exhibitions, performances, film screenings, culinary events, and educational and academic exchanges.
